Get Longer, Thicker, Healthier Lashes Naturally


It’s Oily Friday, which means I’m going to be talking about my oils.

Today’s post was inspired by Food Babe who wrote a post earlier this week about Mascara and which one is the best pick for us chemically-adverse cosmetic lovers. You can see her post here.

Since I was trying to find inspiration for today’s post, this was perfect!

I am about to tell you a secret ingredient I add to all of my mascara purchases. One that I believe makes my lashes longer, thicker and healthier.

And it’s natural!

What is it?

Young Living’s Lavender essential oil!

Yes, you heard that right. I add 1 – 2 drops of essential oil to any new bottle of mascara. Swirl the brush around to mix it up good and just apply as usual.

I know it sounds crazy, right? I’m in several Facebook groups of women who are “oily” like me (that’s the phrase we use for people who love these oils so much and carry them with us everywhere). I kept seeing all of these posts from women saying they used Young Living’s Lavender in their mascara and were amazed at their longer, thicker and healthier looking lashes.

So, I figured why not?

And boy am I glad I did! It works!

And do you want to know why? It’s because about half of us … are you ready for it? Half of us might have eyelash mites growing at the base of our eyelash hair follicles. And if you’re like me and have been using mascara for many years, you’re almost guaranteed to have them!


Don’t get too grossed out though. We humans have been coexisting with bacteria, parasites and mites for a long, long, time.

But here’s the reason you want to put a drop or two of Young Living’s lavender essential oil in your new tube of mascara.

When these mites get too populated in the base of those eyelashes, they can cause that eyelash to fall out. If this happens too many times, the result can be sparse sickly eyelashes instead of the long and luxurious ones we ladies love!

The Lavender essential in your mascara can kill those mites and allow your lashes to be their gorgeous selves without those nasty mites getting in the way of their healthy growth.

You know what else you can do? Wash your face every night with virgin organic coconut oil. There is you should not be sleeping in your makeup and this is one of them!

Want to try this for yourself? Here are the directions:

Lavender-laced Mascara

– Remove the mascara applicator
– Put 2 drops of Young Living Lavender essential oil into the bottle
– Replace the mascara applicator and gently swirl the applicator (Don’t pump! That puts are into the mascara and will dry it out and make it clump.)
– Each time you apply your mascara, simply swirl the applicator first to mix up the Young Living Lavender essential oil in the tube.

Definitely give this a try and let me know how great your lashes look and feel!
